History of CHVOD:

Starting in 20XX, CHVOD originally started with the idea of distributing premium media content. The original goal was to serve already loyal users, consuming other services (also developed by TiCON System Ltd.) with a perfect media content delivery solution. Initially other solutions were deployed and client was facing challenges especially with delay in content delivery. At this point, BlessBit taken over the system and started a whole new experience on CHVOD for HDTELECOM.

Challenges

CHVOD faced below challenges before they were introduced to BlessBit.

Serving VOD content: Infra in one country and consumer was worldwide. Huge latency in content delivery.

System was able to handle only fixed number of users, due to system not being scalable.

Reaching for a new market (country) was not viable due to fixed hardware deployment.

Always expensive infrastructure wise, because of fixed hardware/resource allocation.

No security was available for media content.
